    Hello all!

    I stumbled upon this site about two weeks ago doing a search of the internet on raising chickens. I got it in my little head one day that it would having chickens would be fun, so I started doing some research online. A friend of mine has three of her own, and just loves them to pieces!

    I live on the North Shore of Massachusetts with my boyfriend. I'm 31 and love to cook and garden and do all things domestic. I have one dog and three cats... two old ladies that live in the house and one younger guy that goes outside occasionally.

    I called my local health department last week and they said they would send me information on keeping chickens as pets. As of yet, I've received nothing in the mail. I'm a little nervous, because my town is kind of uppity, but we will see!

    In the meantime, I'm just trolling the boards and learning as much as I can. Went to visit a chicken open house this past weekend in a nearby town and got to see some new babies and three adult hens. I was sold!

    Hope everyone's hens and roos and whatever else you have are doing well!!!! [​IMG]

    Just as you did, I stumbled upon this website about 2 months ago, and there is no turning back from here!

    Good luck with your local laws - hopefully you can enjoy your addiction soon!

    Welcome!

    P.S. The "Warning" sign on the home page about the BYC Forum being addictive should be MUCH LARGER!!
